Seattle native Sir Mix-A-Lot performed at the halftime show during the Seahawks’ Thursday Night game against the San Francisco 49ers at the Lumen Field.
In the first seconds of the second half, San Francisco tight end George Kittle went for his second touchdown of the game to take the team to a 21-3 lead. The 49ers need a win to qualify for the playoffs.
Anthony L. Ray, better known by his stage name Sir Mix-a-Lot, performed at half-time.
“Hawks game AND Sir-Mix-A-Lot live?? Yes please!!” a Twitter user said.
“Sir Mix-A-Lot is here so certainly the 2nd half will be better,” a second one said.
Sir Mix-a-Lot is an American rapper, songwriter, and record producer. He is best known for his 1992 hit song “Baby Got Back”, which peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
He was a regular host of the short-lived UPN anthology drama series The Watcher in 1995. He gave narration in Wheedle’s Groove, which is a 2009 documentary about Seattle’s 1960s and 70s funk and soul scene.
In June 2018, a special on the DIY Network called Sir Mix-A-Lot’s House Remix was aired. It involved the rapper buying and flipping a house in Seattle.
In the first play of the second half, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy found George Kittle wide open on the left sideline. The tight end made a 54-yard run to the end zone. This was the most by a TE this season.
Purdy made two fake pumps and then connected with Kittle for the team’s first touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks.
Last week, the rookie led San Francisco to a win against Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He suffered an injury and played through the discomfort.
